Students whose citizenship is one of the Erasmus+ Partner countries (ie Member States of the European Union (EU) and Former Yougoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Turkey)
- PARTNER Countries students:
All the students who are not Programme Countries students.
The students who are residents or have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last 5 years in any Programme Country will be considered as Programme country students.
